The latest questions for the topic "imputation"How to calculate the values of latent variables in a SEM? Calculation of Factor scores Or Multiple Imputation?
https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/511605/how-to-calculate-the-values-of-latent-variables-in.html
Hello, I have 3 questions:
(1)How to calculate the values of latent variables in a SEM? Calculating of Factor scores in SPSS? Or By Multiple Imputation in Amos?
(2) In a Factor analysis, the factor scores are calculated by only using the measurement variables, but imputation need all variables. Is this conclusion correct?
(3) If a variable has one or some missing value, I can understand the process of the imputation (3 methods in AMOS), but if imputing a latent variable, a whole missing variable, I cannot understand the imputation process. So could anybody tell me the specific process of the stochastic imputation and Bayesian imputation? Thank you very much!amosimputationThu, 11 Jul 2019 21:38:03 GMTYangsirHelp Computing Variable
https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/484490/help-computing-variable.html
I am trying to compute two variables into 1. Both variables are discreet values between 1 to 5. (i.e. they are 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5).
For some reason whenever I try to compute Variable 1 with Variable 2 I just get blank values in the output variable.
My formula looks like this: Target Variable = Variable1 + Variable 2
The data doesn't overlap. So where there's a value for Variable 1, there's no value for Variable 2.
I could do it manually, but that would take forever...
I am able to compute other variables, for instance ones that are scales between 0-100, etc.spssstudenttransformationimputationTue, 11 Dec 2018 19:44:25 GMTpolitesheepKaplan Meier interpretation following multiple imputation
https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/483543/kaplan-meier-interpretation-following-multiple-imp.html
Hello,
I have conducted multiple imputation my dataset, and now I am doing survival analysis, starting with Kaplan Meier. I am running into a few issues:
1) I am receiving Means, standard error, and CI for all imputations, but only receiving Means and SE for the pooled outcome. Of course I can calculate CI manually with that information, I am just wondering if there is an easy way to ensure I receive CIs for my pooled means as well.
2) This one is more critical... I am not receiving a pooled log-rank outcome (chi square + p-value)- only separate ones for each imputation. Is there a way to receive the pooled outcome with SPSS? Or is there a method to calculating it manually (example, medians?)
Thank you!

https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/481891/i-split-my-data-file-by-gender-before-conducting-m.html
I split my file by gender before conducting multiple imputation with my data. This results in me getting one datafile with multiple imputed data, as if I did not split the file. In the output however, it does show imputed values separately for men and women. I cannot tell if the multiple imputation was done separately for the men and women for the sample, or if the split file command was ignored when doing the multiple imputation. I would like the multiple imputation to occur separately for men and women because I will examine gender as a moderating variable.splitimputationSat, 24 Nov 2018 00:05:04 GMTssdermodyCan you do syntax for median imputation with missing data?

https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/456557/spss-estimation-maximization-em-test-issue.html
I am having trouble imputing values into my dataset.
I have 'cleaned up' my data including eliminating participants that are not from the population I am testing from the sample and participants who left all of the questions in my survey blank for extreme missing data. I then ran Little's MCAR test which revealed that my data is happily missing completely at random. I then decided to eliminate cases that left 20% or more of the questions blank. I then attempted to run the Expectation Maximization (EM) test to replace the remaining missing values, but am running into some trouble.
I did this by going to the Analyze tab followed by Missing Values Analysis. I moved the variables associated with the subscale into the quantitative/categorical variables boxes. I put the case ID numbers into the Case Label box. Under estimation, I selected EM. I then clicked EM and saved the new dataset to a new name. I clicked OK. A new dataset was created, but the missing values remain.
I was careful to categorize each of the variables accordingly, either as quantitative of categorical. I also did not include all of my variables at once, but rather only about 8-10 at a time to create multiple sub scales I intended to merge together. It is still not imputing the missing values.
What can I do to correct this? Can you please walk me through how to complete the EM test?spssstudenterrorimputationanalyzedatasetreplaceTue, 03 Jul 2018 15:35:22 GMTMir7SPSS Expectation Maximization (EM) Test Trouble

Here you have my attachment. Please open it
[link text][1]
Please im begging anybody’s help because im an mba student in global hospitality and tourism management and my teacher is unable to help I have purchase the spss premium version so I can use all its features I carried out a survey of Chinese tourists at the airport in order to perform pattern recognition and analysis about them, so I created this small-sized database whose cases are 130 tourists which departed from Milano, Italy in December. There is quite a number of variables Here you have the attached file, my dataset, made from multiple sheets. The first one if the raw datasheet, with variables not split. The second one is the main file actually supposed to be imported into spss. The remaining are multiple response data sets which cannot can be imported as well, but I want them to me analyzed JOINTLY alongside the main sheet. I wish I could merge the sheets into a single sheet to be entered into spss, I have 6 multiple response sets, whose missing values have to be imputed through multiple imputation indeed, but I need to bind the results and the relationships to the main dataset which will be multiply imputed according to the normal spss procedure. They will have to be dummy coded into spss I believe
Ive browsed the web all over searching for papers to help me, i even red lots of discussions on this, it took me more than 1 month to read all of it and for subsequently analyzing those. But so found I found nothing helpful in my case. I have almost no background in statistics that’s why I’m struggling I wish I could merge the sheets into a single sheet to be entered into spss, or at least find a way to bind the algorithm so as to include all my sheets and the procedure to take into account PATTERN At first I thought I had to use subscales, but then I found out that these do refer do multiple non-adjacent items, actually belonging to different questions Does anybody know of any string or manually entered code which will allow me to do this? Or a way to enter the excel sheet into spss or to merge them? How to set up the spreadsheet? If not the multiple imputation will think that different excel sheets are different datasets when they are actually the same I’m afraid these data are not jointly analyzable, I really hope to be wrong, otherwise this will result in data loss on my part
I’ve red these paper which seem not to be helping
-Addressing Item-Level Missing Data: A Comparison of Proration and Full Information Maximum Likelihood Estimation
-Multiple Imputation by Chained Equations: What is it and how does it work? And on top of that, I can’t find this paper online and authors are unreponsive
-A Comparison of Item-Level and Scale-Level Multiple Imputation for Questionnaire Batteries
So I supposed that I should go on analyzing the main data set which is made from nominal, scale, dichotomous and ordinal variables.
---------------------------------------------------------
After the data being solved that I will have to run the multiple imputation itself, but perhaps another kind of analysis is best here. Perhaps factor analysis, but it seems to me that its actually useful for classify variables, not cases Does missing value analysis tell me whether the data are MCAR or MAR MNAR? An user pointed out that data at the end of the day there is always some pattern , and thus no data are truly missing at random If the data are MCAR then listwise deletion is a feasible option, but in order to tell that I need a missing value analysis first. But if the data on the other hand are MAR, then the expectation-maximization could be just as good as multiple imputation. But my teacher told me to perform cluster analysis
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After that I will run descriptive statistics, and afterwards I will test the null hypothesis to check whether some hypothesis I will have developed hold true. This will be a lengthy process I guess I’m unsure whether I have to weight cases, but I red it must be done. Perhaps some variables hold a greater weight than others, but im clueless on how to continue. Please help me in this too. It After that I will have to set the right kind of cluster analysis (since these multiple response sets are indifferent excel sheets), which I reckon can’t jointly be performed on the first dataset either, but just like the multiple imputation it needs to. The same problem explained in the first heading above And also, im unsure on what kind of spss cluster analysis to use, since you can see my data are binary, categorical, nominal and more. It seems to me that k-means clustering can only handle scale/continuous data and is therefore useless here. So it’s either hierarchical clustering or 2-step clustering Hierarchical or TwoStep cluster analysis for binary data?? As this knowledgeable spss developed pointed out, despite what spss website spss, the hierarchical cluster analysis is actually good for binary data I fail to understand the difference between nominal binary and ordinal binary data he points out, which according to him call for different actions, but you can see that since ordinal binary data like mine cannot be analyzed by the 2-step clustering solution, then I don’t know what to do
And what variables should I use for clustering? Will weighting cases affect them? Lastly, I will have to make sure my clusters will be valid, and what should I do for knowing that? If anyone among you professionals could be so kind as to help me out it would be great and, for what is worth it, mentioned in the acknowledgements section of my thesis I’m even willing to hire an expert among you to help me get out this problem, it’s been more than 2 months since im stuck in this situation I’m pretty confused and I therefore ask for people to help me, the procedure is lengthy and I need to graduate
All the best

Hi all,
I have a question related to adding variables to imputed datasets. I have an imputed dataset, which means that each case appears 10 times in the dataset (we performed multiple imputation and did 10 imputations). Now I want to add an extra variable to this imputed dataset. Is that possible?
I tried multiple times by using the key variable ID (each case has a unique ID), but then, for each case, a value for the new variable was only added to the first imputed dataset. No value was added to the other 9 datasets of that case. So it seems not to work.

https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/360992/how-to-condition-multiple-imputation-model-to-pred.html
Dear users,
I am analysing data from an intervention study with 2 time points (baseline and follow-up) and 3 groups. The data is in a long format. As I have 25% of missing data at follow-up on my outcomes (reaction time and accuracy on cognitive tasks), I used multiple imputation technique to address the missing data.
The data is missing at random, however more than half of my variables (RTs) are not normally distributed. I am thus using Predictive Mean Matching.
My multiple imputation model contains 46 variables including categorical and continuous covariates including BMI. I would like to condition my multiple imputation model to account for baseline values in calculating the ones for follow up. However, running the model on split dataset (by time (baseline and follow-up) and group (control and intervention 1 and intervention 2) does not address this issue. For example, the values imputed for BMI can differ by as much as 20 kg/m2 from baseline which is unfeasible.
I therefore wondered if it is possible to specify this constraint in spss prior to running multiple imputation?
Thank you very much in advance for your time and consideration.
Kind regards,

https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/318029/lack-of-missing-values-diagnostics-for-logistic-re.html
I've been asked to run diagnostic tests (trace plots) with my data, but since the imputed variables are dichotomous (logistic regression solution), no iteration history output is produced. Getting around this, there are 5 variables for a much larger set of variables that I want to analyze which require MI due to the researchers’ decision to impute for greater than 5% missing. I'm creating 5 datasets for these 5 variables, each with a somewhat overlapping, but different set of 3 or 4 predictors that best correlate with these variables, and with their missingness. (I would think this should make it very unlikely that I will have diagnostic problems with the 30 imputations selected per each imputed variable, although I do wish there were some diagnostic tests!) Assuming this is correct logic, when I conduct my final multivariate analysis - binary logistic regression, do I need to run another MI for all of the variables requiring imputations in one large MI run, or can I merge in the "separate" MI variables from the separate MI runs done previously? (I see that I can do physically do this merge and get the pooled results for each variable within one file, but don't know if this is methodologically advisable -- how does this strategy sound to you?)missinglogisticregressionimputationdiagnosticsThu, 03 Nov 2016 14:34:14 GMTGKSPSSMultiple Imputation button missing from SPSS 24

https://developer.ibm.com/answers/questions/287431/what-specific-method-does-amos-use-to-impute-missi.html
I created a diagram in amos of 200 interval ratio scaled variables with associated error terms. I had to create a observed variable for each item so that the missing values among all 200 items would be imputed. I have no real path model structure or 'dependent' variable. However, I was able to produce a series of imputed datasets, filling in the values for all 200 items this way.
My more immediate question is whether or not the imputation used when stochastic regression is selected falls under the category of:
EM (Expectation Maximization)
MI (Multiple Imputation)
And / Or
FIML (Full Information maximum likelihood)
I understand that there are differences between these methods but I am unsure what method AMOS is exactly using. My goal was to use FIML, but I fear what resulted was instead, some sort of MI using stochastic regression. The obvious follow-up question to this would be. How do I employ FIML (without an actual path model) in my scenario, to produce estimates for missing values.spssamosmissingimputationfimlTue, 12 Jul 2016 18:51:44 GMTThomasLofaroPooled standard deviations in multiple imputation dataset
